Orlando, FL (PRWEB) January 25, 2014
US Federal Contractor Registration is instructing contractors across the nation to become active in the federal marketplace by registering in System for Award Management (SAM) and FedBizOpps (FBO). FedBizOpps currently has 18,100 government contracts on their database, which are available to properly registered government contractors to bid on. FBO is the main database in which the federal government posts all of the available government contracts. These government contracts become available from procurement officers posting a solicitation on the database for qualified and properly registered government contractor in the corresponding state to bid on.
Federal regulations throughout the years have helped to increase participation in federal contracting by small businesses and underrepresented demographics. Currently, the federal government’s small business prime contracting goal is set at 23% of all contracting dollars. This amount also includes set aside contracts for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB), and Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZones).
In order for businesses to participate in government contracting, federal acquisition regulations require that they first register in the System for Award Management, or SAM. This database of federal contractors replaced the now defunct Central Contractor Registration and Online Representations and Certifications Application systems in July of 2012. Users who were previously registered with CCR and ORCA must migrate their registration to SAM in order to remain eligible for federal contract and grant awards; businesses new to government contracting must complete their new registration with SAM.
